  • Chemicals used for pH Adjustment

    The Chemistry of Limestone Treatment: Limestone is an alkaline agent with the ability to neutralize, or partially neutralize strong acids. The neutralization process occurs when strong acids, in intimate contact with limestone chips, react with Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3, the primary constituent of limestone) to form water, carbon dioxide and calcium salts. The following depicts the neutralization ...

  • Chemicals used for pH Adjustment

    The most commonly used neutralization chemicals for acid or base neutralization are 98% Sulfuric acid and 50% Sodium hydroxide. In many cases these are very good choices, however, there are many considerations when selecting chemicals and these may not always be the best selection. The selection of the chemicals used for the neutralization of an acid or base is almost as important as the design ...

  • Evaluation of critical body residue data for acute narcosis in aquatic organisms

    The Environmental Residue Effects Database (ERED) was evaluated to identify critical body residues (CBRs) of organic chemicals causing acute baseline neutral narcosis in aquatic organisms. Over 15,000 records for >400 chemicals were evaluated. Mean molar CBRs in the final dataset of 161 records for 29 chemicals were within published ranges, but varied within and among chemicals and species (∼3 ...

  • Time to address the air pollution control residue problem

    The incineration of municipal solid waste is gaining increasing importance in the UK, especially as the burning of waste can be used to generate energy, providing a more sustainable solution to our waste problem by diverting it from landfill sites. An issue with incineration is that some of our waste contains hazardous chemicals such as chlorine and lead which are volatilised during the process. ...

  • Electrodeionization

    Electrodeionization (EDI) is a water treatment technology that has gone from an unproven and unknown commodity to one that has revolutionized the industry in the past 20 years. The technology was first introduced to the market in 1987 by Ionpure Technologies. EDI is used in small and large applications. Laboratories use EDI in systems as low as 360 gallons per day (gpd), while power plants, ...

  • Cost reduction and operating results of RO-EDI

    Electrodeionization (EDI) uses electrical current, in lieu of acid and caustic chemicals, to regenerate cation and anion resin. Reverse osmosis/EDI systems are now widely used to replace conventional mixed-bed ion-exchange (IX) technology in a broad range of applications. Proven effective at high flowrates, EDI has in recent years been incorporated in water treatment plants around the world, ...
